Following their 0-0 Absa Premiership draw against SuperSport United on Wednesday night, Free State Stars coach Serame Letsoaka was left fuming.
The coach is still searching for his first win in 2017 and his maiden at the club, and he bemoaned the number of wasted chances against United.
The league encounter played at the James Motlatsi Stadium saw Ea Lla Koto hitting the woodwork more than once whilst some chances were saved by goalkeeper Riyaad Pieterse.
“Sometimes the goals of football, it happens, you create all the proper chances to score and then you miss an open goal,” Letsoaka said after the match.
SUPERSPORT BAG A POINT FROM FS STARS
“I’m sure that we need to build from this performance. In the first half we could have scored three or four goals clearly, but unfortunately it didn’t happen.
“This is what happens. I need to motivate the guys again for the next game against Golden Arrows and make sure they are in a good frame of mind, and show composure in the box is important.
“Coming into this game our boys were very confident, we were sure we would definitely take the three points and it looked like it but we missed the opportunities that we created.
“I’ll take the positives from this game to say we defended very well against a side like SuperSport. The boys put in a good performance in terms of defence and when we attacked we also looked very good. You can attest to it in that two times we hit the bar.”
The Bethlehem-based side will hope to rectify their errors and beat Golden Arrows on Saturday to ease their relegation concerns.
